Sales professionals now benefit from access to commissions and incentive compensation information right in their Salesforce screens

DUBLIN, Calif., Sept. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Callidus Software Inc. (NASDAQ:CALD), a global leader in cloud-based sales, marketing, learning, and customer experience solutions, today announced it has launched its Lightning Commissions application on the Salesforce AppExchange, empowering businesses to connect with their customers, partners, and employees in entirely new ways.

Built on the Salesforce Platform, CallidusCloud Lightning Commissions is currently available on the AppExchange and at calliduscloud.com/commissions.

Lightning Commissions provides cutting-edge visibility for sales reps into the entire sales process and includes tools to easily estimate commissions payments under different scenarios. The offering is available in the Lightning or Classic versions of Salesforce and runs on desktops or mobile devices.

CallidusCloud Lightning Commissions
With CallidusCloud Lightning Commissions, sales representatives can benefit from the following capabilities:

  • Review compensation plans and view real-time commission estimates for all opportunities, at all stages.
  • Estimate and forecast commission payouts under different deal scenarios or with different discounts.

Sales operations can create reports and accurately adjust forecasts, allocate budgets, create promotions to spur new business, and change sales processes to maximize success. They can create and interact with reports from a single dashboard—instead of waiting for IT to create and integrate data —and drill down into attainment, performance, and payment details by sales representative, region, or product.

Increasing visibility into the compensation process and payouts with Lightning Commissions enables sales representatives to adjust behaviors at every stage of the sales cycle to maximize their income and an organization’s revenue. As the opportunity changes, sales representatives can better understand the potential impact on their commissions. Granular visibility also minimizes compensation disputes, as sales representatives can see detailed breakdowns by product and opportunity in real time.

Lightning Commissions is delivered as part of the CallidusCloud Lead to Money suite, a SaaS suite designed to help businesses drive enterprise engagement, sales performance management, and sales effectiveness throughout the sales cycle with award-winning, multi-tenant cloud software.

“To be effective, sales incentives need to be well understood. Sales representatives need to know the effect different deal mixes and discounts would have on their payouts. Lightning Commissions provides quick access to this information, without the user needing to leave Salesforce,” said Andres Botero, SVP and Chief Marketing Officer at CallidusCloud.

“Everyone and everything is getting smarter and more connected than ever before, and companies are looking to transform the way they connect with customers, partners and employees,” said Kori O’Brien, SVP, ISV Sales, Salesforce. “By leveraging the power of the Salesforce Platform, CallidusCloud provides customers with an exciting new way to gain deeper insights into sales commissions and payouts.”
